Self-ligating braces are a groundbreaking orthodontic treatment that is faster and more comfortable than traditional braces. Self-ligating brackets use a unique slide mechanism therefore removing the need for metal or elastic ties. Traditional braces use rubber bands or ties to hold the wire onto the bracket. Thanks to advanced dental technology, we can now eliminate this band and utilize a unique clip or movable door to keep the wire in place. This new type of bracket reduces treatment times and allows you to have a more discreet appearance since there are no ties.
Self-ligating braces help you better keep up on your dental hygiene during treatment because they do not have elastic ties that attract and collect plaque. The lack of ties also allows you to visit our office less because you do not need your braces “tightened” and need far fewer adjustments . Clear brackets may be available for patients who are concerned about their smile’s appearance during treatment. These brackets blend in with the natural color of your teeth to provide you with an even more discreet appearance.
We invite you to call our office and schedule an appointment if you would like to learn more about the benefits of self-ligating braces. We are excited to give you a straighter smile!
